Adriana is a forward free-thinker, and a genuinely empathetic, intuitive practitioner. I have been very inspired for her knowledge and support in the choices I make for my family and myself. I would recommend her for her sensitivity, intelligence and non-judgemental complete openness as a consultant, which is rare and precious.

When I first met Adriana I was looking for an alternative to allopathic medicine in dealing with my family’s health issues. In her I found someone I trust, who works with our strengths making us all healthier. Now, we are rarely sick, we look at health and illness in a different, responsible way. I can always count on Adriana to make me aware of all aspects of my health as well as challenging me to put important changes in place towards our wellbeing.

I came to see Adriana to address my general well being, mainly affected by intestinal and gynaecological symptoms, which were not eased by pharmaceutical drugs. Her recommendations were well explained and easy to follow, and my questions were always answered clearly. I have kept the changes in diet she suggested since then. Some special moments of the therapy include her useful support in emotionally challenging times, as well as my recovery from most physical symptoms I initially presented. The knowledge Adriana possesses regarding the functioning of the body leads to our global holistic wellness.

It was great to meet Adriana and every session with her has been very informative, thorough and inspiring. I have since felt secure knowing that when needed, me and my family would get reliable advice which may be hard to find elsewhere. The scope of Adriana’s knowledge is extremely impressive, and comes across in a very holistic and accessible way that feels totally personalised to my needs. She is a very kind, generous and warmhearted person. I have recommended Adriana to many of my friends and family.

I can’t tell you how much I have been enjoying life, love and work. It is like you’ve taken me apart, smoothed out all the bumpy bits and put me back together. Quite amazing!

Jo Taylor, business consultant

Adriana facilitated a space for me to perceive my own life and well being as a working ‘whole’. All aspects of my life were taken into consideration in a safe and non judgmental container where I could view myself objectively. My key experience of her therapy was crucially empowering. Adriana has a rare intrinsic sense of the ‘whole’ as mattering, which is vital in the healing process, no matter what the ailment…

To feed body, mind and soul… Adriana!!!

Oliver Giffin, choreographer and teacher

Meeting with Dr. A T Candeias guided me through my questions and helped me to have a perspective into my projects. Dr. A T Candeias recommended me effective remedies as well as books to read for further information, which were a valuable suggestion. I found a good listener and good advice which has guided me in the long term. I deeply recommend Dr. A T Candeias.

Gwenaelle Ambuhl, composer and musician

I have seen many practitioners in over 40 years seeking treatment long term underlying conditions, and it has been hard to find professionals whose prescribing adequately addresses the complex issues we face in our physical and emotional health. Thankfully naturopathy has moved on hugely in recent years and I believe complex prescriptions that treat all levels is the way forward. Adriana’s knowledge and prescribing are very solid, my chronic fatigue is improving and I have benefited enormously under her care. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
